It would be interesting to see the results.
I was impressed with Pixel camera app on my old phone, it was way better than stock app, and my old phone had a really bad camera hardware. Yet the pictures it gave were surprisingly good.
In combination with P30P's hardware, it would probably blow everything else out of the water...

Is that possible? I know the GCam app saved my Galaxy S10+. It's the only reason I still have it. I didn't think you could do it on Huawei phones?

The app would have to be changed to work on Huawei phones and therefore it´s Kirin processor. So far i do not know any version of the google camera mod for the Kirin 980 wich are really working good

There were working ports on kirin 970(same architecture), but only on android 8 - so the chipset itself is not a problem. They blocked the support since emui 9.

Gcam 5.1.018.17762477 port works on my P30PRO but has worse results than Huawei app - link https://customtech.es/tutorial-gcam-...mate-20-series

Interesting! I would assume the results are worse because it has not been developed with tweaks specific to the P30 series. The fact that it works means that there could be some action in this area! Thank you.

This version made by BSG V2e: MGC_6.1.021_MI8_V2e.apk worked for me (kind of, crashes quite often on settings change, but still).
The only worthy addition to Stock camera is the "Photosphere" panoramas, other than that the Huawei stock app provides far better results due to the fact that GCam has absolutely no support for Kirin CPU I assume

Try and experiment carefully with the settings within the app.
Or you can try any other mod from dev-suggested page.

Honestly P30 Pro seems like an awesome device so far,
and not sure there is a need for GCam (the mentioned port really does the job with panoramas in Photosphere) as the Stock camera app is quite good
